Every evening around 8 PM, the River Roost Lounge welcomes Yee Haw Bob. This is one of the best musical variety shows we have seen. There was great crowd interaction the evening we were there. We were passing by and ended up staying for two hours it was so much fun. The River Roost serves a nice selection of appetizers and also has full bar service.

Definitely stop into the River Roost lounge and check out the Yeeha Bob show. It was a lot of fun for all ages, great comedy and music. The lounge is a nice venue for the show, but be aware that it can get crowded. Our service was a bit lacking at times because there were too many people for the number of servers. Overall though, I highly recommend you make a stop in here while staying at Port Orleans!

The drinks are well-made and fairly priced. My gripe is with the piano player. He is obviously a very-talented man, and might be worth listening to, but I don't think he could be any louder. The room was packed and people seemed to be having a good time. But ear-splitting entertainment is not for me. If it's not for you, either, consider getting your drink to go and relax outside on the front porch.

This piano player is a Disney Legacy and is worth staying at this resort just to see him. His family friendly shows are fantastic and he has more talent in his finer than I do in whole body Disney Must do

I spent part of an evening at the River Roost Lounge after returning from Disney Hollywood Park for a beer and to listen to Yehaa Bob (or should I say be entertained by). The lounge was of decent size, but could've been even larger based on the number of people present past 10:00 at night. There is a bar with barstools as sell as small tables throughout. The bar was full when I got there so found an unoccupied table. There were a couple of waiters who wandered through the tables, but you had to flag one down if you wanted service.

The first waiter who came to my table seemed to be inconvenienced by having to serve me and would've preferred if he could've just picked up the previous guests ticket and left. At no time did he smile or say welcome or other greetings. The second one was more what you would expect from someone in the service industry, but you still had to flag him down at times. They had a small selection of beers on draft and others in bottles. There was also a full selection of mixed drinks and various wines available as well. The Abita Amber beer was pretty good and worth it. At $6.75 it was on the pricier side, but on par for Disney.

The highlight was Yehaa Bob. He performs throughout the evening and gets all of the audience involved in the act. While he wouldn't win any awards for his singing, its his ability to interact with the crowd that makes him entertaining and going back again to listen and watch his performance. It is one of the better acts that I have seen at a hotel, Disney and non-Disney alike. You can bring your kids along, however it is also an excellent way to spend an hour or so away from them as well. He has a small piano along the wall where the show is centered, but be prepared to run around the bar on an imaginary horse if he pulls you up to the stage!

I would recommend going to the River Roost Lounge for a drink particularly when Yehaa Bob is performing. Otherwise it is like any other lounge and nothing special.
